    Peanuts Head to the Big City in First Apple TV+ Movie
    Apple TV+ has announced a new original Peanuts feature film
    from WildBrain and Peanuts Worldwide. The film will follow
    Snoopy and Charlie Brown's biggest challenge yet, as the
    Peanuts characters embark on "an epic adventure to the
    Big City, learning the true meaning of friendship, while
    meeting some surprising new friends along the way."
    Production from WildBrain Studios will begin in 2024.

    "Fans of all ages have been enamored with Peanuts on
    Apple TV+," Tara Sorensen, Apple's head of children's
    programming, said in a statement. "With our unmatched
    library of Peanuts titles, and award-winning collection of
    stories that bring kids and families together, Apple TV+ is
    the preeminent home for Snoopy and friends, and offers a
    world class selection of series and films featuring the
    most globally cherished animated characters. We can't wait
    for everyone to experience this heartwarming new adventure
    with Snoopy, Charlie Brown and the gang in the Big City."

    Karey Kirkpatrick, known for "Chicken Run," "Smallfoot" and
    "Over the Hedge," co-wrote the screenplay from an original
    story by "The Peanuts Movie" writers Craig Schulz,
    Bryan Schulz and Cornelius Uliano. Additionally,
    "The Peanuts Movie" director Steve Martino will direct the
    new feature and two-time Oscar nominee Bonnie Arnold, known
    for the "How to Train Your Dragon" franchise and "Toy Story,"
    will produce.

    "It is so special to carry on my father's legacy with an
    original story from me, my son Bryan, and his writing partner
    Neil," Schulz said in a statement. "We are excited to be
    partnering with Apple TV+ and working with WildBrain Studios
    to bring audiences a brand-new Peanuts adventure, along with
    the talented Bonnie Arnold as producer and Steve Martino as
    director. Peanuts fans have been clamoring for another
    feature for years, and this film will bring joy to our
    millions of fans around the world." 

    Apple's new Peanuts feature is produced in partnership with
    WildBrain and Peanuts Worldwide - its first three-way
    partnership on a feature film. The film will join Apple TV+'s
    growing slate of Peanuts specials and series, such as
    "A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving," "A Charlie Brown Christmas"
    and the Emmy-nominated "Snoopy in Space."
